Description:

Let Me Count the Ways
written and recorded by Bill Pere

When was the last time a song really made you reflect on your life, your hopes, your dreams ?

BILL PERE is a Grammy award winning songwriter, performer and recording artist, known for lyrics that tell unforgettable tales of ordinary people who weave the tapestry of human experience. Bill's songs can stand alone as a musical experience, but there is always the important and subtle underlying message of social conscience that makes them touch you even more deeply.

LEt Me Count the Ways is Bill's 17th release, recorded during the pandemic from 2020-2022. The album was originally intended to be 12 new songs that celebrate loving relationships. When the pandemic sent everything into quarantine, Bill had much more time to work in the studio. He started going back into old songs that had never been recorded, finding those that could have a life with a little facelift. So the 12-song album became a 37-track double album, with songs spanning 1966-2023.

Bill's lyrical artistry is evident,  well supported by his intricate and powerful music arrangements. His signature guitar versatility is well represented by a variety of acoustic, electric, and Midi styles, backed by full band accompaniment. 

"Let Me Count the Ways" maintains the high level of songcrafting  and production since "Crest of a Wave" caused a sensation when it was first released in 1991, through "High School My School" in 2003.  

Proceeds from the sale of Bill's CD's go to help Hunger Relief and family service agencies, through Local United Network to Combat Hunger (L.U.N.C.H.).

If you like lyrically rich songs that have meaning and emotion:

Check out Bill's spiritual journey CD's.  Besides "Dare to Dream", there is "New Day Coming Tomorrow",  "You'll See a Much Brighter Day" and " Christmas Eve on the Poor Side of Town"

Look also at Bill's AMERICANA series of CD's, which  includes "High School My School" (high school setting)  "Crest of a Wave" (maritime setting), "Cityscape" (urban setting), "Rural Mural" (rural setting) and "College Collage" (college setting).

For a great collection of songs for kids and parents,  there are the 3 interrelated CD's  "Songs For Kids Who Like to Think",  "Songs for Kids With Common Scents" and "Songs For Kids Who Touch the Stars".
